Time to Say Good Bye – A story of a mine digger
Received a photo from my friend and requested me to paint this photo and share it out to others. Husband aged 55 but looks like 70, and wife aged 45 but looks like 55. From his white and pale face we know that he is a mine digger. For the past 30 years, every year he has to stay underground for 9 months non-stop digging and digging. But what he gets is US$150 per month. Wife is looking forward for his return after 9 months’ hard working and hoping that he can share the last 3 months with the family. For every year thousand and thousand of mine diggers die in China’s mine fields. He is one of the lucky one who can survive that long.
